The company that presented "Tho
Christian" at the Auditorium last night
was very evenly balanced throughout
and gave excellent satisfaction to those
who attended the performance. Miss
Clara Blaudiok as "Glory Quaylo" is an
notn-ss of genuine talent. Her voice is
flexible and her conception of the
character was ( lawless. Stauton Elliott
as , "John Storm" gave her excellent
support and several of the scenes were
thrillingly dramatic. The audience
was chary of its applause but it is be
lieved that the efforts of the company
were heartily appreciated. Those who
saw the play and also that of the
numteur company headed by Itev.
Franklin Bttkor and Miss Esther Mason
that presented "Tho Christian" a year
ngo were afforded an opportunity for
comparison , and it is no discredit to the
professional company to say that the
amateurs approximated them in merit ,
eo far a ? the loading members of the
cast are concerned. Rev. Mr. Baker
nud Miss Mason had a conception of
their parts that was almost perfect and
with the practice aud experience that
have been enjoyed by the o taking the
parts last night , might fairly have
rivalled them in merit. The next ap
pearance of the Liebler company is at
Kearney , where they appear tonight.
The next attraction nt the Auditorium
is"v7nlkir Whitoaido in "Richard III"
which is to ho presented Monday even

bered that the Auditorium was Opened
by him in "Hamlet" which ho followed
with "Tho Red Cockade" the next
night , nnd subsequently he presented
"Heart and Sword. " Those who have
seen him in those productions are con
fident that no trouble will be exper
ienced in filling the Auditorium on the
10th , as he is one of the most finished
actors that a Norfolk audience has had
the pleasure of hearing aud Hoeing. Ho

will anxiously await his presentation of

J. K. Smith relates a little anecdote
that aptly illustrate iuo love nnd af
fection implanted in thn human heart
by the Creator oven beyond the pale of
civilization. Lastv\ecv ! while he and
Judge Williams , of Pierce , were in
Niobrnra they met an Indian family on
the street. The Equnw had strapped on
her back a little red baby boy , loss than
a mouth old. The judge paused a mo
ment and finally pounaded mamma
Indian to take the wee redman out of
his warm nest. Ho was a bright little
fellow whose eyes shone nnd twinkled
like twin stars. The judge had never
seen a real live native American baby
and , 'tis said he opened his eyes iu
wonder wide , as the proud mother
placed her untamed son in the arms of
h's ' honor , the court. It was dressed in
warm clothes , rich" with co'ored bead
work which its loving parents had made
with their own hands. The grim vis-
aged buck and his two little girls looked
s"ently on while the baby was in the
stranger's hands. The judge playfully
remarked that he wonld buy the tiny
'Injun" which the parents took as a
joke. Then he took a dollar , offered it
to Mr. Pawnee , pointed to the babe and
then to himself. The little girls under
stood this and with n cry of dismay
sprang to the side of their mother aud
begged her , in Pawnee , not to sell their
baby brother. The judge sustained [ the
objootion nnd promptly handed back
Sun and nir or whatever his name is.
The little loving sisters then dried their
tears and soon were happy again. And
yet those Indians are uncivilized.
